A proverbial 'How Not To Manage' a company. Every person is more inept than the last. Zero room for career growth.

Inside Sales (Former Employee)
San Francisco, CA

I worked at Autonomy full-time for more than a year

ProsYou aren't held to your ancillary metric of calls so long as you perform the actual task of sourcing meetings.
Fairly relaxed environment except when management is present.
Free breakfast Wednesday, free lunch Friday.

ConsYou cannot advance within the company and there is zero track for career growth.
Management is pompous, vindictive and petty. A company of many bads ideas.
Don't confuse motion with action.

Advice to Senior ManagementQuit. There's no hope for these people. I would say accept input from your staff but that's already in place in a kind of shrewd attempt at feigning interest.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

I worked at Autonomy full-time for less than a year


Pros: most powerful black box technology for squeezing maximum value out… Cons: Very little flexibility in opportunity management Advice to Senior Management: why not build a search engine based on IDOL?
